On Wednesday 12th December, Westborough students enjoyed the first Curriculum Enrichment Day of this academic year. The theme for the day was ‘My Future’ with students from Year 7 to 11 taking part in a range of inspirational and thought-provoking activities.

Several guest speakers and facilitators delivered sessions on a variety of issues, from community cohesion through sports to a career in the army. Despite the diverse array of sessions on offer, one common question continually arose throughout the day: ‘how could this newfound knowledge improve my prospects?’

Students were a credit to the school in the way that they behaved and engaged with the activities on offer. We are already looking forward to our next Curriculum Enrichment Day and hope to see some of our fantastic guests back at Westborough.
